In my experience as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, I have attempted to help people struggling with emotional difficulties, compromised productivity, troubled relationships, and stunted creativity. Sometimes these difficulties yield to medications, advice, or short-term strategies. Sometimes they are the product of conflicts with a long history that result in frustrating repetitions that cost the patient time, pleasure, and fulfillment. Until these conflicts and feelings can be talked about they will show up as action and people will feel stuck and hopeless. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis can break this logjam and free the individual to choose their own course.

Are you not as healthy - in mind or body - as you would want to be? Have you already consulted numerous healthcare specialists but remain confused, broken, and desperate for answers and relief? Do you suffer from chronic pain, fatigue, brain fog, memory problems, depression, low energy, insomnia, anxiety? My passion is helping people regain their health and restore their hope. As a seasoned (Harvard-trained / Harvard-affiliated) holistic psychiatrist and innovative psychoanalyst with expertise in the integration of traditional and alternative approaches to MindBodyHealth, I have acquired a broad-based appreciation for the underlying causes of, and holistic treatments for, chronic psychiatric and medical conditions.

I am an integrative practitioner who can assess biochemistry to identify important deficiencies/abnormalities that may be related to mental health symptoms. I can also provide genetic testing for medication management. Patients often seek integrative/"functional" psychiatry after they have trialed multiple medications, experienced unpleasant/unremitting side effects, and have not been able to obtain symptom alleviation with traditional psychiatry. I believe strongly in psychotherapy to help the patient work towards healing. I work collaboratively with other treatment providers and am a strong advocate for my patients needs.
